May/09/2010

I can't believe how much I like this product. I'm not a huge fan of Avon products but this one has changed my mind. After using this for a week my skin has improved in all aspects. I look more radiant every morning, skin tone is more even and I haven't gotten any irritation or breakouts. This creamy textured serum also hydrates nicely without feeling heavy or greasy.
The only …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Fusion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/02/2010

I'm a mascara junkie and my favorites are Shu Uemura Basic, YSL Everlong Waterproof and Shiseido Perfect Mascara. However, I have to try every new mascara from the drugstore (and Sephora) and got 4 of these at drugstore.com (I shared 2 of them with BFF and sister).

I love the brush, love the formula (the original Lash Blast was good but got dry and was a little too clumpy), love …

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Conju Princess Soap

Mar/18/2010

This is the most fabulous beauty discovery I've found in a very long time. I happened across this soap at a Shirokiya store which sells Japanese goods here in Hawaii. I supposedly has some Korean herbs in it and is something a princess used to give her flawless skin.

I noticed a small counter selling this product (which just launched that week) and was given a sample - but I …

I've tried several of the products with Swiss Apple Stem Cells (or PhytoCellTec/Malus Domesticus). 3Lab's M Cream and Emerge Swiss Apple Stem Cell Serum. I love them (especially the Emerge Serum - I actually used the entire bottle which I almost never do) - but they are expensive. $250 and $120 respectively.

I was searching on eBay and came across this product. I almost over …

Liquid - REVLON - PhotoReady Makeup [DISCONTINUED]

Jan/08/2010

I'm a sucker for high def makeup - but after just about all of them have left me disappointed, I'm over it. I purchased this foundation and the matching powder. I have sensitive skin that likes to break out, get oily and yet have dry patches. This made me look like a mannequin. I tried several different applications and just could not get it to look natural. Great pump, possibly great …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double Extend Mascara with Lash Boosting Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/15/2009

With all the hype about nourishing mascaras and serums, many of which are quite pricey, L'oreal just released two new products that target that market. With the success of the Oscillation primer, this seems to be the drugstore take on that product.

The mascara is okay - but I'm going to judge it on its treatment merit vs. its cosmetic one. Its a double sided primer/mascara …

Treatments (Face) - Kiehl's - Acai Damage-Repairing Serum

$48 for 1.7oz (pump bottle)
<br>
I had such high expectations for this product that I ignored the fact that it has lavender oil in it...which I'm convinced I'm really allergic too. That aside, I can see this being a very comfortable serum/treatment for oilier skin since it left no residue. Drier skin will find it rather, well, drying.

$55 for 20g tube
<br>
This foundation actually comes in 12 shades ranging in three ranges: ivory/pink, ochre, dark. You can request a sampler of preselected shades on their website to try. I used 113 which was a nice light-medium ochre shade that wasn't too yellow which is characteristic of asian cosmetics.

Advertised as a high-definition foundation that …

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

Sep/16/2009

Shade: Stromboli (medium yellow beige - no pink)

I love the finish of this foundation. It gives just the right amount of coverage for a more natural look and texture. Even on my combination skin, it did not feel greasy or get cakey during the day. In fact, my skin felt very comfortable for the duration of the day (in humid weather). If you have very oily skin, this may not be the right …

Treatments (Eye) - 3LAB - WW Eye Cream

Aug/20/2009

For $250 (for .5oz.) I expect a product to do miracles. This one barely lived up to its price tag. While impressive in concept, this is basically a good eye cream that belongs in the realm of say...$50. Aside from the very luxe packaging (which I appreciate) this cream did hydrate, firm and brighten enough that I wasn't completely disappointed. I liked the texture - it was neither too heavy …Read more
